Is there a dirt bike "problem" in Cascade Shores?

Despite what you may have read in the Union, or rumors within the Shores, The Homeowners Assn. board members have no opinion/stand on what some locals are calling a "dirt bike/noise pollution" problem in the Shores and Gas Canyon area. Only a very small number of residents (3) have made negative comments to CSHA, and it is not within their realm to get involved. Law enforcement has no reports of vandalism or crime in the area associated with riders. No great light was shed on the problem, if it does exist, at the monthly meeting.
As far as I am concerned, personally, this is a recreational area and there is expected to be boaters, bikers, ATV's. Unfortunately there are also folks driving way too fast. A community like this is made up of all kinds of folks with all kinds of noisy hobbies. Can we concentrate on the positive? It's still paradise to me. . . . imperfections and all . . . . kids of all ages love two wheels, 3 wheels, and 4 wheels . . . so do I (I have a 750 Honda for my kicks). It is OK to ride on private property without permission? No. Is it OK to go 50mph in a 25? No, uncool, and dangerous. But, we will never have CHP down here to site speeders, (they say they don't have the resources) so how do we create awareness? There will always be those to whom the laws don't apply. I watch people of all ages every day speed up and down the hill, . . . . cars, trucks, delivery vehicles, bicycles (doin 35!) and motorbikes. Whadda do? Are you part of the solution, or part of the problem?
